ReadWriteWeb is one of the most influential online digital blogs about start up forms and technology. They recently ran a piece entitled Never Mind the Valley: Here’s Portland.
When asked what shapes Portland’s startup culture, Silicon Florist blogger Rick Turoczy named 3 defining aspects of the industry – hardware roots, open source projects and iPhone development. Turoczy has been in Oregon for the past 15-years and started Silicon Florist as a way to cover the region’s early stage startup scene alongside other Portland tech sites like Mike Rogoway’s Silicon Forest blog and Strange Love Live.
Since then he’s watched his town grow into a bustling tech hub and enjoyed every minute of it. ReadWriteWeb caught up with Turoczy and a few other Portland influencers to get a feel for the scene.
